"Fairie's Tears" or Prayers for the Immortals"...(Shui Xian)...Rich, Dark Wuyi Oolong with Complex Layers of Aroma & Flavor, Oolong Tea
Shui Xian... (Fairies Tears or Prayers for the Immortals), Amongst the rich aroma notes and complex layers we find a hint of Narcissus in this Wuyi Oolong sometimes known as Water Sprite, or Water Fairy. This selection delivers a medium amber cup with full fragrance, mouth-feel, and honey-like flavor.
Deeper within its rich aroma notes and complex layers we find a hint of dried stone fruits like apricot or plum, fragrant wood and mineral in this legendary Mingyang (of famous rock) Wuyi Oolong.
We can trace the uniqueness of this tea to the Qing dynasty when it was learned that tea made from old tea bushes discovered by the “Cave of The immortals” produced both distinct character in the cup, and wonderous medicinal effects on the body. Our Shui Xian is deeply complex as well as savory producing many infusions of rich highly pleasing amber tea.
